Assessment@JCU

At JCU, assessment must be valid, fair, authentic, developmental, transparent, and varied. Aligned and authentic assessment enables students to demonstrate appropriate knowledge, skills and application.

Assessment frames student learning and provides evidence of achievement. To assure standards, assessment design and learning and teaching activities have an overt alignment to subject knowledge and skills and the application of these.

This section provides a range of resources to support your assessment practices, which are aligned to JCU’s Learning, Teaching and Assessment Policy, the JCU Curriculum Framework and the University’s initiative to “extend the use of authentic learning and assessment that promotes inquiry, problem-based learning and work-related studies across the curriculum” (JCU Academic Plan 2018-22, p.11).
